For many, walking across the stage in your cap and gown to receive your diploma is an "I made it" type of accomplishment. It's a celebration of all the hard work you've put in, and naturally, people want to experience this important day with their family and friends.

Sadly, there are those who can't revel in these special moments with their loved ones because they are on the other side of the US-Mexico border.

Angel Marin is someone who knows firsthand how heartbreaking this can be. So, the high school graduate decided to recreate his ceremonious event at the border for his deported mom.

Marin wrote on his Facebook account,

"Since my mom couldn't make it to my graduation I took my graduation to her...❤ I love you mom. I'll bring you back soon. like it up and share please!!! #IMPEACHTRUMP #STOPDEPORTATIONS"

Marin also posted a video where you can hear him and his mother tearfully saying "I love you" to one another.

His sister Yesenia Lucero also shared some beautiful words with the picture of her mother and brother embracing each other at the wall.

Part of her message read,

"It's hard for us to see and hear you cry. You've missed birthdays, graduations, births, and lots more but I'm glad you got to see your little man in his cap and gown. This is all for you ❤️  No wall, mountain, or government will ever stop us from achieving everything you wanted for us! I promise you that my siblings and I will always be on the move to make you proud. To become something in life." 

Since sharing his touching moment with his mother, Marin has received hundreds of comments expressing sadness over the situation.

His post has 17,000 reactions and nearly 20,000 shares. 

Marin has also received almost 1,000 comments — and some of them have been controversial; one person wrote, "Come in the country the right way and you'll have no problem." 

The mixed reactions might be because of his #ImpeachTrump and #StopDeportations hashtags. Although deportations occurred pre-Trump, Trump has widened the deportation criteria, which increases the range of people who can be prioritized for deportation.

Unfortunately, Marin isn't the only person who's had to take it upon themselves to make sure their family is included in these momentous occasions.

Just last month, another high school graduate recreated her graduation photos with her deported mom in Mexico. 

No matter the distance, we know that these mothers are SO PROUD of their children.
